Looking for a Few Good Men and Women
An invitation is extended to men and women of the parish (college age and older) to come to Eucharistic Adoration the First Friday of each month. Due to age, illness or relocation, participation at First Friday Adoration has dwindled. Recently we have experienced insufficient attendance when a parishioner finds him or herself in church alone or no one comes for the next hour. We particularly need more coverage during the late afternoon and early evening hours. Won’t you please consider coming to church for adoration one hour each month? Adoration begins after the 12:10 p.m. Mass and continues until the Holy Hour between 8:00 and 9:00 p.m. and concludes with Benediction. Come and quietly pray, perhaps say the Rosary or read an inspirational book. Our Parish Library has volumes waiting for you to borrow. If you want to join us, please call Arlene Hluch at 908-604-6674 to let her know which hour you may be available. A sincere thank you is also extended to all those who currently attend regularly as best they can.
